Locus Robotics, a leader in autonomous mobile robots (AMR) for fulfilment warehouses, has acquired Waypoint Robotics, an industry leader in industrial strength, autonomous, omnidirectional mobile robots.
Rick Faulk, CEO of Locus Robotics said: “As order fulfilment and labour shortages continue to grow around the world, the acquisition of Waypoint Robotics will accelerate our ability to meet these global needs in just months rather than years, helping us drive the digital transformation of the warehouse.”
The acquisition broadens the Locus product line of AMR solutions that address use cases from ecommerce, case-picking, and pallet-picking to scenarios requiring larger, heavier payloads and fulfilment modalities.
Waypoint’s innovative Vector and MAV3K are industrial-strength, flexible mobile robot platforms that feature omnidirectional mobility, and can be fitted with a wide variety of modules and attachments, making them versatile and scalable for a host of applications.
They are interoperable with other robots and can easily communicate with machines and IoT devices throughout a facility.
Jason Walker, CEO of Waypoint Robotics said: "We’re excited to contribute to the expansion of the Locus product family in order to deliver a broader range of solutions, as well as access to new market segments.”
